I think what bothers me the most, actually there are several things,
He keeps getting refered to as the 'first African American President'.
HE IS NOT African American, he is a Bi-Racial American, 50 % of the blood that
runs through that mans veins is WHITE, yet he and the media seems to side a lot with the African American side.
At the college on election day two African American males made a comment,
Now that there's a brother in the white house we'll see some jobs
I was like, A DUHHHH, that man (Obama) got a job, actually more than one without a 'BROTHER' in
the white house. I could care less if he his skin was bright purple with green poka dots wearing a yello tutu,
if he can do the job then he can have it.
And the prayer after, when the yellow can mellow and the red man something or other
and the white can embrace right?
So because I am white I don't embrace right?
That one truly truly shocked me.
What I fondly remember and makes my heart warm, is watching him with love in his eyes for his wife, her in his arms
and all the hope of tomorrow in his eyes, them dancing, now that warmed my heart.
I feel this man has walked into a hornets nest and I pray Allah will guide him and give him wisdom to make the right
choices and decisions. He sure has his work cut out for him.
I will try my best to make sure I make a brief prayer each night for his and his families safety and for his heart and mind to be just and that Allah will give him wisdom to make the right choices.
He sure has one heck of a job on his hands. He seems like a very bright, intelligent man.
I really enjoyed his speech and hope he can get through these next 4 yrs without losing his faith, determination and sincerity.
Sister Halima said it beautifully when she said,
'Two things about Obama that have resonated with people from around the world are: a sense of hope and change. His demeanor radiates these. His face shows that he his sincere about them. His speech did not mention the word "terrorism" even once.'
